My roommate has moved out, and I got a chest deep freezer, so I am hoping to make batches of food and freeze them for easy meals as needed.
My family was a real meat & potato family, and didn't really pass along a lot of cooking or baking skills, despite my mom being a good baker.
So, in a fit of curiosity/boredom/hunger I decided to make something from a cook book a bought a few weeks ago: Good and Cheap: Eat Well on $4/Day (it was designed to feed someone on a food-stamp healthy meals, though they have to assume a basic-equipped kitchen at least. For every book sold a copy is donated to someone who needs it).
I decided I would make something from their Big Batch section, and decided on pierogies as I had the ingredients already (though I substituted russet potatoes with what was available: sweet potatoes).
Pierogies are notoriously time-intensive, so for doing it the first time I halved the recipe (it called for two eggs, couldn't easily reduce it further ).
Boy are fresh pierogies delicious! I served myself some for dinner. I tried one just boiled, and fried the rest, but it was delicious both ways (or maybe it was the fact I was eating at 9 pm? ). Then I froze the remaining pierogies where they remain in my freezer for future meals.
Are you guys trying your hand at anything new in the kitchen?
Or if you are an expert hand in the kitchen have you made something you haven't in quite a while?
